Investing in Edmonton's futureThe success of the Investment Program has made a positive impact on the daily lives of Edmontonians and is paving the way for a financially sustainable future.

Savings in Property Taxes

Over the last 10 years, investment earnings and dividends have contributed $759 million to the City’s budget. If these numbers are related back to taxation, property taxes would have increased by more than 7% over that time to make up the $759 million difference.

Additional Source of Revenue

Revenue generated from the City’s investments goes toward the City’s capital budget every year. This revenue is generated outside the standard municipal revenue streams, which gives the City options to pursue capital projects that, otherwise, may not have been possible.

In 2016, approximately $90 million of investment earnings and dividends were contributed back to support the City’s various capital projects.

Edmonton’s Financial Sustainability

The City's Investment Policy establishes prudent investment criteria that balance the desire for maximum return with an acceptable level of risk. By doing this, the program helps the City meet today’s needs — while also building a positive financial legacy for future generations.
